Lift Z stages provide direct vertical
motion, eliminating needs to use wedge and other mechanical
translation means. Top plate moves up and down without any horizontal
displacement. Stages have all-around air bearings which can also serve
as a fail-safe brake. Lift Z stages can be integrated with
Rotary tables and
Planar XY table for
Air bearing operates by floating the forcer
on high pressure air introduced through orifices in the forcer. Air
bearing motors can operate continuously at high speed without wear.
IntelLiDrives Lift Z stages are
micro-stepped by proportioning currents in two phases of the forcer,
much same as in rotary stepping motors. When micro-stepping LSM Z
stages, higher positioning resolution, smoothness at slow
speeds and wider speed range are achieved. Can be supplied with
IntelLiCoder feedback for closed loop servo operation.
